December 14, 1799 President George Washington passes away... . . . . . . . . Washington spent much of December 12 riding around his estate in cold and rainy weather. The next day, he admitted to a sore throat, but he refused to do anything about it. His secretary, Tobias Lear, later wrote that Washington considered the sore throat a “trifling” matter and “he would never take any thing to carry off a cold—always observing, ‘let it go as it came.’” Washington spent the evening reading newspapers aloud—apparently in a hoarse voice—with Martha Washington and Lear. Unfortunately, the “cold” quickly became more serious. Washington woke Martha up in the early morning hours, saying that he felt unwell. Martha wanted to get help, but it was cold, and he refused to let her get out of the warm bed. He did not want Martha to catch a cold. The next morning, doctors were called to Washington’s bedside. Unfortunately, the medical practices of the time most likely worsened his condition: They “bled” him repeatedly. Interestingly, one of the doctors urged a different cure. He wanted to cut a hole in Washington’s trachea, beneath the supposed infection, to help him breathe, even though his throat was closing. (Modern doctors have speculated that even this solution might not have helped, though.) At about 4:30 in the afternoon, Washington asked Martha to bring him his wills. He had her burn one, as it was useless. Washington gave more directions about other matters to Lear. At one point, he told a doctor, “I die hard, but I am not afraid to go.” Later, he asked Lear to make him a promise: “[D]o not let my body be put into the vault in less than two days after I am dead.” (Presumably, he did not want to be accidentally buried alive.) Lear nodded, but Washington persisted: “Do you understand me?” Lear said, “Yes, sir.” Washington responded: “’Tis well.” These were his last words. He died soon thereafter. At the time of his death he was living in retirement at Mount Vernon.
Today I am preparing remarks to be delivered as Caty Greene (pictured here at Ferry Farm, George Washington's boyhood home) during this Sunday's parade for Victory Day in Charles Towne. We know that Lady Greene participated in the march-in that signalled the surrender of the city on Dec 14, 1782 out of the hands of the British Army. The Continental Army of the Southern campaign, under the command of General Nathanael Greene liberated the city from British occupation upon that day, as the troops began their evacuations. At Sunday's commemoration, Caty shall close out the pomp and circumstance....and so I turn to the words of the women who lived in these tumultuous days. '...animated by the purest patriotism...*This* is the offering of the Ladies....' . .

In this week’s episode, we discussed the Haitian Revolution led by Toussaint Louverture and the language of revolutions. Why do we see the American Revolution and French Revolution as a fight for liberty, but see revolutions against slavery and French colonial power as violent and cruel? The great irony is that they learned this “cruelty” from their colonizers. ____ Listen to Episode 14 by following the link in the bio or anywhere you get podcasts. ____ • • • • #revolutions #haitianrevolution #frenchrevolution #americanrevolution #toussaintlouverture #decolonizehistory #nowincolor #historyrepeatsitself #historybuff #blackhistory
#OnThisDay the United States' first president, George Washington, died in 1799.

After writing “Common Sense” in 1776, Thomas Paine donated all of the royalties from the publication to Washington’s Continental Army. That money was used to provide mittens for the soldiers. In that same spirit of generosity, my students collected 94 pairs of mittens and gloves to donate to charity to warm hands and hearts this winter. Happy Christmas to all! 🎄🇺🇸 #teachersofinstagram #ushistory #thomaspaine #iteachtoo #highschool #iteachhistory #1776 #americanrevolution #georgewashington

George Washington, first President of the United States and still one of the most revered people in American history, died #onthisday day 219 years ago-Dec. 14, 1799. Washington commanded the Continental Army during the American Revolution, leading the colonists to victory over Great Britain. He strongly supported the Constitution and was twice unanimously elected President of the United States by the Electoral College. Washington served as President from 1789-97. When Washington died, one of his contemporaries, Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee, called him "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen." Ironically, one of Henry Lee's sons, Robert Edward Lee, a Virginian like Washington, would later lead rebel soldiers during the Civil War in an attempt to split the country that Washington worked so hard to create and build. (Of course, Washington was a rebel in his own time as well, leading colonists in a split from the British.) #georgewashington #POTUS #americanrevolution #virginia #civilwar #emergingcivilwar
#onthisday 219 years ago-Dec. 14, 1799-George Washington died at age 67. Washington was the most revered American of his day and remains one of American history's most famous faces even more than two centuries after his death. Washington led the Continental Army during the American Revolution and was a near-unanimous popular choice to be the nation's first President after the Constitution created the office. In fact, Washington was twice unanimously elected to the presidency by the Electoral College following the popular vote. He served as President from 1789-97. When Washington died 219 years ago, one of his contemporaries, Henry "Light Horse Harry" Lee, remembered him as "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen." #georgewashington #POTUS #americanrevolution #virginia #werehistory #twitterstorians

I recently visited entrepreneur Amos Lozano in his hometown of San Antonio, TX. Amos showed me great hospitality throughout the week. I visited Amos to gain a better understanding of what he’s been up to since closing his juice shop, Famous Juice Co. After visiting, it’s clear Amos has chosen a greener future. If you’re curious to learn more about industrial hemp, follow @eatplantsmoveoften and his new venture @emjayze_hempgoods. His products are available to order online and they help soothe anxiety, stress, pain, and insomnia (without getting you high). I’ve been enjoying Emjayze and would be happy to share my personal experiences with you! Fun fact: Hemp was already legal to grow in Minnesota via a public university pilot program, but hemp will be removed from its schedule 1 status at some point next year. Thank you Mitch McConnell, very cool.
This is the interior of the Governor's Palace in Williamsburg. Even though this building burned down in its entirety, Thomas Jefferson made accurate recordings of the size and style of its many rooms while living here as governor. Those drawings served as the foundation for rebuilding the structure during the 1930s. http://ow.ly/j2Fv30mXuh5
Here’s a drawing I did for my GCSE sketch book! It’s of Deborah Sampson, my actual queen. I love her so much, as she broke strongly enforced gender roles in the 18th century by not only fighting in the American Revolution, but giving lectures about her experiences. On the left I used my favourite quote by her on top of a drawing of a statue of her outside the #sharonpubliclibrary in Massachusetts. • • • “I am indeed willing to acknowledge what I have done, an error and presumption. I will call it an error and presumption because swerved from the accustomed flowery path of female delicacy, to walk upon the path of heroic precipice of feminine perdition.” • • • • • #sharonmassachusetts #massachusetts #americanrevolution #americanrevolutionarywar #deborahsampson #art #doodle #sketch #drawing #watercolorpainting #watercolourpainting #gcseart #gcse
On this day in 1774, Paul Revere makes a furious ride to warn colonists that the “British are coming!” Okay, so it wasn’t that ride. Revere’s famous midnight ride was still 4 months in the future. Instead, this little-known ride was made from #Boston to #NewHampshire . Relations between Great Britain and her American colonies had been strained for quite a while. In October 1774, King George III made things even worse: He imposed a ban on the exportation of arms & ammunition to North America. He also wanted arms already in the colonies secured. Patriots in Boston soon heard that British vessels were headed to Fort William and Mary, in New Hampshire. The roads were a frozen, slushy mess, making travel dangerous. But Paul Revere was determined to carry the warning. He set off early on December 13. By the end of the day, he was in New Hampshire. A fife and drum paraded through the town early on December 14, calling militia to action. By mid-day, 400 militia had gathered, prepared to attack the fort before the British Regulars arrived. That garrison was guarded by only 6 men. It fell quickly, and colonists carried away about 100 barrels of gunpowder. “The logistics of overtaking a woefully undermanned fort were not daunting,” historian Christopher Klein says of the attack, “but the sheer brazenness of the mission, and its dire consequences, should have given the men some pause…storming the fort ‘was the highest act of treason and rebellion they could possibly commit.’” Nevertheless, 1,000 colonists were back the next day. British reinforcements wouldn’t arrive until too late. Governor Wentworth blamed the entire episode on Paul Revere. Before he’d arrived, Wentworth wrote, “all was perfectly quiet and peaceable here.” FULL STORY: TaraRoss.com #TDIH #USHistory #history #liberty #freedom #TBT #throwback #AmericanRevolution #historybuff #sharethehistory

One trunk will be entered for judging at the Heart of TX Regional History Fair at Baylor in February 2019! Visit the museum to view a collection of pieces from this great project now through December 28. #highpointelementary #beltonisd #historyisfun #kids #education #americanrevolution #travelingtrunks
Spending the afternoon having high tea at @tinastraditional tea room in @visithamiltonco. 🍵As an avid coffee drinker, it’s rare for me to sit and have a cup of tea. It’s nice taking the time to enjoy a nice warm cup of tea. I’m drinking the 1776 Blend- a tea the captures the spirit of the American Revolution. It has hints of maple and strawberries. 🍓 A delicious way to spend the afternoon. Are you a tea drinker?

On this day in 1773, Philadelphia taunted Boston in a local newspaper about tea that had landed. Philly had forced their tea agents to resign, so Boston needed to ensure tea wouldn’t land either. Boston has 3 days to finalize their strategy for the tea. Learn more in a #bookbybrooke .
